Well, what a weekend!!! It was an absolute scorcher and it was a pleasure to play on the main stage of what must be one of the most beautiful locations for a music festival - Looe. We kicked off our set at 6pm to a huge crowd on the beach. The sound was awesome and the response from the crowd was even better!! What a great bunch Looe festival goers are! Thanks to everyone that came and danced/sang along and just generally got involved to create one hell of a gig! Definitely one to remember!
Here's a pic James took from the stage - brilliant!
Once we'd played we could chill out and enjoy the rest of the festival! The atmosphere just walking around Looe was great. Around every turn you could hear music coming from somewhere new and everyone was in high spirits. The weather stayed glorious too! We managed to see loads of top bands over the weekend - our favourites being 'Tankus the Henge', 'Oompah Brass', 'Land of the Giants', 'Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls', 'The Red Hot Chilli Pipers' and 'Three Daft Monkeys' amongst others. Check them all out!
On Sunday, we decided we would join in the street atmosphere fun and do an impromptu busking gig (well, two actually) in the street on top of our van! This went down a storm! We attracted quite a crowd too to stop, listen and dance and managed to sell a load of CDs too! Bonus! It was so much fun - we're definitely thinking of doing it again somewhere sometime so keep your eyes peeled! We even caught the attention of several photographers and local papers as a highlight of the festival!! (Yes!!) - see below.
Trev, our awesome Sound guy and roadie brought his mini bikes along so we also turned a few heads riding these up and down the streets - haha!
Overall, it was a stomping weekend! Absolute cracker of a festival! We were proud to be a local band associated with it once again and overwhelmed by the support we got from people! A massive thank you to the organisers and fantastic volunteers that worked at the festival making it run so smoothly and being so helpful. It was definitely the best one yet!!!
We would LOVE to see you on the beach at Looe Music Festival 2015 to do it all again...!!!

Well, what can we say?! Our album launch party went better than we could have even imagined! An absolutely epic night!! Thanks toy everyone that came out for it - you were amazing! What a way to mark the release of our debut album! ******BEST GIG EVER!!******
We don't think we could have squeezed anymore of you into The Vauxhall Quay. It was absolutely packed to the rafters from start to finish!! Even the floor was moving up and down with so many people dancing!!
It was the time we played the whole album straight through and the response we got was incredible! Thank you to everyone who brought an album on the night too!
Massive thank you to Russell Sinclair and Orangutan Wheelbarrow who both performed superb sets to get the crowd going before we came on to finish the night!
